Over the last few millinia, Cannabis medicine has been of great value. Notwithstanding corporate, governmental and criminal interventions to mislead and forbid the People’s fundamental right to enjoy equal access to this medicine, today, there are multiple Nations world-wide and 29 US states that have recognized it’s powerful medical effects and have thus legalized it for medical reasons. In addition, 8 of the US’s states have legalized it for recreational reasons, including California. In this workshop, we will review both the benefits and the limitations of cannabis medicine and how best to use this millenia-old “sacred holistic plant“. (Source).

A. TESTIMONY OF ONE OF THE MOST EMINENT HARVARD PROFESSORS OF MEDICINE, PROFESSOR LESTER GRINSPOON, ON THE GOVERNMENTAL AGENT’S FRAUD IN BRAINWASHING THE PEOPLE:
In this less than 2 minutes interview, Professor Grinspoon, a prolific author on cannabis research since the 1970s testifies to the Governments’ public agents’ persistent brainwashing about cannabis. Dr. Lester Grinspoon is Associate Professor Emeritus of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School. Grinspoon was senior psychiatrist at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center in Boston for 40 years.
B. TESTIMONY FROM DR ABRAMS, CHIEF ONCOCLOGIST AT THE SAN FRANCISCO GENERAL HOSPITAl & PROFESSOR OF MEDICINE
Most of the elected Republican and Democratic public agents who control U.S. government have claimed since the chemical and oil industries rose to power that cannabis has no medical worth. As a result, many Government public servants and law-makers, in the name of the People and Science, demonize cannabis and list it, along with heroin, in the Schedule I drug classification of illegal narcotics, which is the most tightly restricted category of dangerous drugs in the United States. According to the federal government, Schedule I drugs are unsafe and have “no currently accepted medical use in treatment in the United States.”
However, as Cannabis proponents and honest scientists have pointed out since the Controlled Substances Act was passed by Congress in 1970 and before, Cannabis has been used medicinally for thousands of years, and there has never been a reported case of a deadly Cannabis overdose. Moreover, in recent years clinical researchers around the world have demonstrated the medicinal value of Cannabis in many diseases. For decades, American researchers couldn’t even get a ” positive” or objective cannabis research done in this country, let alone a clinical trial. Those who controlled the Government in this realm, DEA & NIDA (National Institute on Drug Abuse) only allowed “negative” cannabis research. When California’s governor stepped in and got the Legislature to appropriate funds for clinical trials, the Federal Government tried to control this process by obliging the concerned researchers to use only the cannabis NIDA provided, which was 3 to 4 percent THC and therefore too weak for a therapeutic effect. The bottom line is that these agencies are mandated by the US Congress’s lawmakers to suppress the Science of Cannabis. Question: what if most everything else that we are told by these professional politicians and their scientists is also tainted by this institutionalized bias. From the economy, to taxes, war, human rights, trade, jobs and education ? What if ? See Holistic Wesbite’s links on “Why a holistic campaign”, and H.G.’s a “new story” for a few answers. Meanwhile, colleague Dr Donald Abrams, Professor of medicine at UCLA and Chief oncologist at San Francisco General Hospital corroborates some of these above-mentioned allegations and confirms a few of many ganja benefits.
C. THE GROUP MARIJUANA MEDICAL DOCTORS TESTIFIES ON BEHALF OF THIS MEDICINE
CANNABIS IS AN EXIT DRUG TO ADDICTION AND PAIN RATHER THAN A GATEAWAY DRUG
“Our study shows that more than 80 per cent of medicinal cannabis users reported substituting cannabis for prescription drugs including opiate pain killers,” says Walsh, who’s the primary investigator of the Cannabis Access for Medical Purposes Survey (CAMPS), the largest Canadian survey of medical cannabis patients to date. This is consistent with recent findings from the U.S. that indicates medical cannabis use had a role in a nearly 25 per cent reduction in opioid overdose deaths — which is a really big deal given the crisis Canada faces with prescription opioid use.” (…) The study also found that 51 per cent of the 473 respondents report substituting cannabis for alcohol, and 33 per cent suggest they use cannabis instead of illicit substances like cocaine and crystal meth. The CAMPS study, which provided data on cannabis substitution, was supported with a grant from UBC Okanagan’s Institute for Healthy Living and Chronic Disease Prevention. Walsh, who teaches psychology with the Irving K. Barber School of Arts and Sciences, worked with the University of Victoria’s Philippe Lucas, a research scholar with the Centre for Addictions Research of B.C.” (Source)
